Crayfish from Lartington High Lake on Rules' own estate
A Freshwater shellfish, which is sometimes described as a miniature lobster. Shedding their carapace seventeen or eighteen times in their first year alone, Crayfish are at eating size between their second and third year.
Trapping Crayfish on balmy moonlit summer nights on Lartington High Lake is a favourite with our Gamekeeper: “To me, Crayfish are more than shellfish; they are something precious; a memory connected with clean, clear water. And, of course, they are the best aphrodisiacs. If you have a tired old man, give him a few of our Lartington Crayfish.”
